Since my last post, I have been extremely busy. Figured today was a good time to give an update since I got a tractor today that I need help with. I'll give my last four months in order. in august, I purchased a John Deere G100 with bagger and aerator and also received a free Toro wheel horse 12-32xl with the purchase. both tractors ran when I got them so that was kinda boring! That same week, I decided to start working on my 312-8 wheel horse. I tore it down completely and restored it and even put brand new tires on the rear. I went with 23x10.5-12 Carlisle Tru power tires, I personally think these are the best AG tires for garden tractor and look awesome on it. while working on the wheel horse, I came across a Springfield 36 locally and bought it. That tractor needs a ton of work but will be totally worth the effort when I get to finish that one! I in October, I found a Kubota L3600 for sale that needed a new cylinder head and it would be good to go. me and my dad went half's on it and we took the head to a friend who fixed it so we wouldn't have to buy a new one. back to the wheel horse, my deadline to have that tractor done was Halloween so it would be ready for our party. that deadline got tight when I ran to Rhode Island to buy a Case 150 I found on craigslist. the case needs the chassis welded but other than that it is ready for winter because it came with a plow for snow. the good news is I finished the wheel horse on time and was a major hit at the party! This is where the problem arises, Today I picked up a John Deere 430 tractor. The man who owned before had nothing but problems with it, says it ran sometimes and others wouldn't start. he removed the starter solenoid but didn't remember why he did that( older gentleman, about 90 years old). anyways, I got it home and noticed many wires have been cut and some are bare and some go nowhere. So What I need is help with the wiring. Just wondering if someone may have a wiring diagram to this tractor and any input as to what to look for on this tractor would be greatly appreciated. and also, we got the Kubota running today and it runs like brand new! Yup, I've been busy!
